The National Resistance Movement (NRM) is not investigating its Treasurer, Barbara Nekesa over the loss of any party money.
The NRM Senior Manager of Communication and Public Relations, Rogers Mulindwa cleared the air on Friday saying that no single money of the ruling party was stolen from the home of the Treasurer located in Bukasa, Makindye Division, Kampala.
Speaking to our reporter Mr. Mulindwa explicitly noted that the stolen money belongs to the Treasurer and her husband, Haji Sulaiman Mafabi Lumolo, a wealthy city businessman.
“I would like to state it on record that there is no investigation ordered or sanctioned by the party chairman against our Treasurer over the loss of any money. Police are investigating the loss of personal money belonging to Ambassador Nekesa and her husband,” said Mulindwa.
He emphasized that the ruling party did not lose money in the December 5, 2023, incident in which armed robbers broke into the home of its Treasurer.
“Let me categorically state that NRM as a party has not lost any money as being wrongly reported. It was the personal money of the Ambassador and her husband,” said Mulindwa.
The residential guard reportedly deactivated the alarm system and the CCTV cameras, which were monitored and controlled at the central security room near the main gate.
Police has since made a dozen arrests including four of its officers in connection with the robbery.
The associates of Nekesa maintain that it was Shs41.5m that was stolen. She had reportedly withdrawn the money from her account at DFCU Bank, Nakasero branch.
Mulindwa called for calm as the police and court continue with the investigation on the matter.
“The police and courts of law are doing their work on the matter. Let’s all wait for the outcome,” said Mulindwa.
